"Hollywood marriages aren’t known for their longevity. But occasionally, platonic Hollywood friendships bear incredible fruit". "In the 1950s, two close friends, Rosemary Clooney and Bing Crosby, were perhaps the biggest duo in show business. They recorded three studio albums. They co-starred in the classic film “White Christmas.” And as the 50s turned to the 60s, they teamed up to host a talk radio show, The Crosby-Clooney Show". "Crosby’s career had blossomed during radio’s heyday a few decades earlier, and was presumably happy to return to the form. A reviewer from the New York Times commented on their productive friendship and the apparent genuine enjoyment they seemed to get from each other’s company: "I love the idea that these two global stars managed to maintain a platonic, positive relationship in an industry that often (and especially recently) can get pretty negative and exploitative". "The radio show didn’t last too long, but the pair continued to collaborate on and off through the 1970s. Interestingly, both Crosby’s granddaughter and Clooney’s nephew would enjoy successful careers in entertainment as well. Bing died in 1977, and the following year, Clooney released a tribute album, Rosie Sings Bing, a fitting final chapter to their friendship".
